Monday, February 14, 2011: Mad Love

Because everyone who wants to watch a show about a couple who fall in love at first sight will be at home watching TV on Valentine's Day, CBS is premiering a show about just that tonight. Mad Love centers on a a couple (Jason Biggs and Sarah Chalke) who meet on top of the Empire State Building and very quickly find they are perfect for each other. Unlike most other relationship-y sitcoms popping up this mid-season, they are the only couple. Hopefully, this will give the show a sense of Dharma and Greg-like focus, even if the characters seem all too bland.

Of course, in order for a show like this to work, the couple need to have conflict brought in from outside their relationship. Thus, we get to their wacky-but-lovable best friends (Judy Greer and Tyler Labine) who are forced to become friends themselves. While clearly not high-concept, Mad Love could easily make CBS a bit more watchable on Mondays. The friend characters might be able to develop actual personalities outside of insulting each other and even become interesting on their own. No matter what though, the inoffensive charm of Biggs and the lovable next-door sweetness Chalke brings to every performance will make sure to snare at least some of the How I Met Your Mother crowd.

Mad Love premieres tonight at 8:30 on CBS, so give your remote a rest after HIMYM and let us know what you think.
